More on Ebay Suspended Accounts Suspension

Please Note: This guide is a couple years old and has been outdated with time. If you’re looking for a solid updated guide to setting up a new eBay account I recommend you read eBay Stealth – eBay Suspension Guide. It is written by me and kept up to date. Good luck everyone! – Aspkiin

It seems my eBay guide about suspended accounts has been one of my more popular posts. My random blogging about my car breaking down or me hitting a deer over the summer doesn’t seem to stimulate you people as much as eBay and their suspensions. Fine.

You guys have questions — I’ll try to answer them.

So your eBay account has been suspended and your business is drying up and about to disappear. I’m sorry. I’ve been in your shoes before many times. You spend hours setting up your account only to see it the next day Banned!

How does eBay catch me you ask? Well they track everything! Everything! You’re IP address, your email, your website URL, your credit card, your name and address. They keep track of all this information and more to identify you.

If you are banned they will use this information against you. Example: If you try to create a new account with the same credit card, you’ll receive a warning that that card has been banned and you need to try another card. Please don’t try another card, eBay already has you. They have identified you as a suspended user and if you try to sign up with another account without changing your IP address and deleting your cookies, the new card you try will be banned as well.

EBay has you. But not for Long.

Like I said, eBay tracks all your information. Your goal is to create a new account with new information.

Use a different email address. Use a widely known email provider like Gmail or Yahoo. If you use your domain email, example [email protected] it’s easier for eBay to track you and ban you. Another example. If I had an eBay account using [email protected] and they banned it. I wouldn’t want to create another eBay account using [email protected] EBay is not dumb, they will ban you. Even if eBay doesn’t find it within a couple weeks, your competitors will. Don’t risk it.

Become someone else.

You must change your name and address but keep it in your area. If you’re in San Antonio, Texas don’t make up a new address from Los Angeles, California. EBay is not dumb; it’s easy to track your location through IP address.

Don’t believe me check out this website: http://www.geobytes.com/IpLocator.htm?GetLocation

This brings me to your IP Address.

You must change your IP address before creating a new eBay account. Once banned eBay has your IP address, every time you log into an account with that IP address eBay knows who you are. Sure they’ll let you create a new account with them, but their bots will auto suspend you the next day. Change your IP Address every time you create a new account.

Emm cookies. Yep eBay leaves cookies on your machine. Clean them up. Delete all your cookies before you attempt to create a new account.

Use a pre paid credit card.

Once you’re suspended, you won’t be able to use the same credit card to create a new account. You’ll have to get a pre paid credit card or use a different credit card of yours. Try not to use the same name and address when entering the credit card information for eBay. Add extra letters change the address a little. Just enough not to get caught. If you’re able, use a different name and address with the card.

If you use gallery pictures, have eBay host them. Try not to host them on you’re own server.

Try to follow eBay’s rules. I know they are picky bastards but you got to play ball if you want to stay in the game.

  1. Don’t spam them with thousands of auctions with 999 quantities of each auction. This is a red flag to eBay and they’ll probably auto ban you.
  2. Don’t list more then a 100 new auctions a day.
  3. Don’t give eBay a reason to ban you!
  4. Don’t have external links on your auctions trying to promote your website. If eBay doesn’t catch it, you’re competitors will.

Last but not least, once you are banned, let it be. Create another account and run. Never log into a banned account after you create a new account. If you do eBay will link those accounts together and the fate of the banned account will be shared. Your new account will be suspended as well. 🙁

A run down on how to create a new account after being suspended. IMPORTANT! In this order!

  • Delete your Cookies
  • Change your IP address
  • Register with a new email address
  • Sign up using a different credit card
  • Try not to use the same information twice
  • Never Log into banned accounts

I’ve created quite a few eBay accounts and out of trial and error I’ve figured out what I just told you, how to get around suspended eBay accounts. I’ve seen people trying to sell information like this for hundreds of dollars. I give to you for free.

A side note: I have just finished my final guide to eBay suspensions. If you would like to know more information, here is the link.

Discuss eBay suspensions in our brand new FORUMS.

Good luck!

I’d like to point out that an even better way, though long term, is to simply stop doing business with them. There are plenty of good ebay alternatives that need only traffic to be even better than ebay. If ebay permanently lost the business of everyone whose account they suspended and let that traffic go to a rival they’d be hurting and we’d have a fair, competitive market where getting suspended by any one site isn’t a big deal. Setting up stealth accounts though, and continuing to give them a percentage is like having someone throw a rock at your… Read more »

sellers should check their accounts thoroughly,it bad enough being ripped off by royal mail, paypal and the customer, i have gone back 4 months on my sellers account, checked it 3 times (a lot of figures to add up and deduct, they say I owe them £170.47, yet my fees total £149.20. Contacted them twice, first gave me a lot of bull about vat (which would have been on the invoice unless they dont pay it), then they said they will look into it and come back to me in 24/48 hours, they never did despite contacting them a further… Read more »

Thank you for the info. I just do not understand eBay. They suspend accounts that have 3 negative feedback’s a year, but they keep the once that have over 20 negative feedback’s. That’s just not smart, not smart at all.) After eBay account was deleted for how long do they keep the seller information?

I was banned for a reason which was absolutely ridiculous but they don’t want to know. I tried to set up an new account, same computer, same address, different card, different landline verification to the address but paypal linked them. Question: how important is it to change your name? Won’t they see it doesn’t match the bank account its registered to (I have a card that’s not been used yet and isn’t registered to the home address). If I register my account to a new address, on their computer with a new card, different landline verification but same name would… Read more »

Hi, this site is an excellent resource. thanks for all the info. I have a question that you might be able to answer for me please. My account was originally suspended due to unpaid fees. Combined with negative feedback on another account, and the fact that I also tried to open an additional account ( I know I was very naive lol ) I was indefinitely suspended. So. I opened a new account under my mothers name, different computer, different IP address etc. Anyway I think I slipped up somewhere. I had just gotten the sales up to a decent… Read more »

Hello, I would appreciate some advice. First I am currently a TOP-RATED POWERSELLER w/ 100% positive feedback, My original eBay account is “indefinitely restricted from selling”. This happened around 3 months ago. I called eBay several times but they would not un-restrict me account. I can still sell the remaining items, which was over 150 when restricted, down to 39 items now. I just can’t list any NEW items, but I am able to revise current auctions with new items. At this point eBay will not allow me to appeal. So I took over my girlfriends account and have started… Read more »

Yes they do indeed track you.

They just suspended my account because I was logged in when I was abroad. They sent me an email stating:

“Your account is currently restricted due to discrepancy between your account activity location and registration address.”

They now want me to change my address to that country. What the hell? It’s been months and they keep insisting I change it. I think that account is as good as gone. Unless we can register eBay accounts to a hotel or something.

Dumb ass eBay.

Hi

Can I use my US based ebay and paypal accounts while I am in Pakistan?

Can I use my other ebay and paypal accounts (because I have two of these, one registered in VA and one in Canada)on the same PC or shall I use two computers with different internet service providers?

Can I use any US based internet service provider to provide me internet service if using it from Pakistani IP address is a trouble?

Thank you very much and your help will be highly appreciated.

Hi, I’ve been registered with Ebay UK since 2008 and I have 100% postive feedback. About a week ago I sold an item, the buyer says he didn’t receive it and Iam guessing his going to open a case wanting his full refund, I know I will be loosing the case as i don’t have a tracking number for the sent item. So I have nothing to prove, so I decided to delete my Ebay and Paypal acount. I was just wondering if Ebay can still get through to me when my acount is closed. Thank you

Hello Aspkin, I had an account on ebay US which was only for buying. Then i decided to lets say “update” it and become a seller also. I changed my account to be a seller too. I found a manufacturer and i posted his product on my ebay account to be sold. The next day i saw that my account was suspended because of recent account activity has raised serious security concerns. I called them and asked them why. They said to me that one of the reasons is that because i am logged in to the US ebay and… Read more »

My current account which they left opened, is limited to selling only 6 items per month, which doesn’t really help.

I am banned from Paypal due to having mulitple accounts under my name which of course I have no clue what they mean. My eBay account is fine and running. I guess Paypal didn’t ban eBay because the reason why Paypal banned me was nothing to do with eBay. I don’t see my question post anywhere here so I’m asking: Now my question is can I use a new Paypal account with the current eBay account? (as long as I don’t link them together I presume) Your answer will be must appreciated as I’ve been wanting to find that out.… Read more »

Hello,

I got the ebook, it’s really usefull!

I wanted to ask you a question regarding a Canadian eBay account.
I registered an account in eBay Canada and I used a Canadian bank account for PayPal.

If I add an additional (US) bank account to PayPal, will they consider me as a US account instead of a Canadian account?

I would like to keep this account registered only with Canada and to make sure there is no indication that I sit in the US.

Thank you for your help.

Is there any benefit to closing all accounts associated with the suspended account and waiting awhile before signing up again to sell? Of course I would take all the above steps but with the accounts cancelled, a link to the old account would be impossible, no? Also, if your suspended accounts are closed, a new ip is made, and all cookies are deleted can they track you in any way? There would be no info to compare it to…not sure just a thought. Please advise…

Hey Aspkin,

Just stumbled on this page…awesome by the way.

Just one question. Does getting suspended have any effect on paypal? Will i be able to send money to the original email address i used when i signed up for paypal? Ive head that paypal and ebay are basically the same company.

So basically i just want to know if when i creat a new account can i keep my original paypal account since thats tied to my bank account.

thanks matt

For example: create new ip address 210.111.111. Create new ebay account with this information and note the IP address. Then I create a new IP address 211.222.444 and create a 2nd account.

Exellent!!! Thanks.

When you mentioned file descriptions, titles … did you mean listing desciptions and titles? If so, do I have to change the image file names as well?

And one more thing. I’m currently hosting the images on (eg) abcde.com to display images in item desciption of my listings. however, since my account was suspended I am moving all my images to (eg)12345.com. The problem is although the domain names are different, the IP address of both domain names are the same. Would this be a problem since it is hosted on the same hosting company.

Thank you once again.

I found out something that worked for me. I had a paypal account linked to a suspended ebay account. I opened another ebay and paypal account in a friends name. When I won an auction, I asked the seller to send me his paypal address. I would then pay directly through paypal with my original paypal account, not through ebay. I selected the (goods other) option. I didn’t have any problems.

This is your instructions: * Delete your Cookies * Change your IP address * Register with a new email address * Sign up using a different credit card * Try not to use the same information twice * Never Log into banned accounts I read about traps that ebay and paypal send to try to connect you, what are they. Also, I have opened another account just to be able to buy someting, I don’t care if it gets suspended. When I set up my new account following your… Read more »

hi,

Great info. thank you so much! I’ve been selling again thanks to your advice! One quick question, can i pay my seller fees with my original paypal account (by using my balance i have in the account) or will they link it to the original ebay accounts that are suspended? I’ve made all the changes you’ve asked to make but was just wondering if that would be possible to pay with the balance in my paypal account rather than the credit card on file with ebay…Thanks in advance

Hi, I love this post, thanks so much for having it. I do have to chime in though regarding using your old paypal account. If you use your new Ebay account with your old paypal account your fine (for now) unless you link the two together to use the Paypal shipping feature. You may be grandfathered in and currently using the Paypal Shipping and no one is looking for you but I can assure you they are comparing notes now on new link ups and it will get you booted by doing this. Walk carefully among the giants…

I have also heard that ebay can read the user id and computer pwner name. Should anyone who needs to start a new account change the computer name and add a new user? Ir, is this overkill? Thanks

One more thing regarding ebay. When I add a paypal email address to my current paypal account, do I have to make it my primary one or not? If yes, do I have to delete my primary one? The primary one that I have on there now is the one that was associated with ebay when they suspended my account.

aspkin In your opinion what would be the site most likely to succeed over ebay? I have done some research, and from what I see there are a couple of competitors that are getting their gears together. But they are far away from ebay. In my opinion they lack the user friendly interface that ebay has. On ebay a monkey can sit down and click on the buttons and figure out how to sell.. but if you take Overstock or Amazon for example, you have to spend 1 week just figuring out if you listed your auction or not.. Anyway,… Read more »

I ordered a prepaid Mastercard gift card today online and assigned all of my ebay info( i.e fake id, address, phone, ect) and should be availble to try it maybe mid-next week. When they check that card for address verification though won’t it go back to the card that actually made the pre-paid card purchase? Thats what I am worried most about. You personally have dont the prepaid cards before and they have worked sucessfully? And just curious, how many times have you failed trying to get back on Ebay?

Do you have to use a pre-paid card with a name on it or not? There seems to be some disagreements about this from what I have been reading on the web. I don’t want to try my nameless card just have it throw up red flags. I already got my account up and in few days hope to add the seller information (i.e. credit card info). They don’t require a checking account at Ebay do they? Been a long time and I cant remember and I am afraid to ask them! Thanks again!

When you sign up and give them a fake name/address at Ebay and lets say you do the same at Paypal, if you use Paypal shipping your address is going to be whatever name you used right? I am somewhat confused about the name changing. Isn’t that going to cross reference somewhere?

Thanks for the advise!
But now what?
Do I pay outstanding fees? They inform me I may go to the “second stage” of my appeal against the unjust suspension after Oct.11,06
I owe them about $ 130.00, they are asking for about $ 165.00, which includes the fees for these darn removed listings. Looks like they add insult to injury.
Do I wait and see what happens after Oct. 11 or dump the whole issue and start fresh (as you advised above)?
If I don’t pay the fees will they not just go to PayPal and grab the money anyway?
Regards
Jorg

Is it totally irrelevant that eBay advised me they had made a mistake by removing the ad in the first place? More so, subsequently placing the listings back in my account for re listing. I wouldn’t have re listed had eBay not confirmed the ads were OK to relist.
It doesn’t make sense!

I don’t fully understand the solution with the CC. If we use a new CC or a prepaid one, what’s the difference. Moreso, if we get a prepaid CC, and the name is the same (address is already different) would ebay be able to detect the name? If this is the case and it’s not an issue, can we use one of the new credit cards that we have without worry?

Thanks

You say above to use a pre-paid credit card. I’d very much rather do this than give them another one of my credit card numbers. I know these cards are pre-loaded w/ cash, but how do they work when it comes to the name and address. eBay already has this information and can compare it. Also, our IP is registered in DE, but our offices are in NJ. Does that send up red flags to eBay?

Brad
Guest
Brad

OK, will do.

One last question – we replied to their email from a new IP address. (have not yet created a new eBay account.) I’m assuming that they can not track an IP address from either reading an email and/or responding to it.

Is that correct?

We have also been accessing our previous email address, which was used soley for eBay business.

Thanks for your help!!

We were linked to a suspended account, which I thought was paid in full. Now they suspended our new account. Do you think they are trying to get money from the old one and won’t activate our new account?

I had an account that was banned, which I emailed time and time again to get cleared up. I finally received a response from eBay and they said I needed to pay over $300.00, which is from eBay fees and items we sold, but shipped.

My question is, if we pay this, will they activate our account again, or are they just trying to get more money out of us?

Thanks!!!!

Thanks for the info on the changing the IP address.

Do you know if the only registered IP address w/ eBay is when you open a new account, or do they keep track of each IP address that you used to log into an account? (basically, do they keep each accessing IP address ever used to log into a seller account)

Thanks for your help on this.

My only question is, how do you change you IP address? I have comcast high speed and I’ve tried several times to reboot, unplug, etc. to get a new IP. It’s not working.

This is the last step in us restoring a new ebay account.

Please advise.

Great info, I was wondering, does my paypal registration information have to match the credit card and registration I use for ebay? Specifically, does the name and address of the bank account information (in paypal) have to match the credit card used for the ebay registration…or is it just the numbers that they watch?

I appreciate your articles on eBay account suspension; they have helped me overcome an unjust eBay suspension of an account that was pulling in thousands a week. Why they would want to ban such a revenue source, I’m not sure.

Also, a quick question if you would; do you think having pictures hosted by my own domain in the html code would like the accounts together? I use eBay for gallery photos, but in-auction photos I use my own hosting. Let me know! Thanks!
